Salesforce has collaborated with the Ministry of Education to train and skill 1 lac students by 2026. The students will be trained through Salesforce’s online learning platform – Trailhead on Salesforce skills.
Salesforce, an American cloud-based software company that offers CRM software and apps for sales, customer support, marketing automation, e-commerce, analytics, and application development.
The curriculum for training the students will be made available with nationally recognized, industry-relevant course content for the National Occupation Standards. Along with job connections to Salesforce partners and clients seeking to acquire Salesforce-skilled people, it also contains training modules for instructors. In order for the students to profit from these programs, the Trailhead Module will be customized in accordance with the requirements of the programs offered by the Ministry of Education and other connected departments, organizations, and agencies.
“The Ministry of Education’s Department of Higher Education has decided to offer industry-related courses on the SWAYAM platform in collaboration with Salesforce with an objective to increase the employability of the students. By combining our resources, expertise, and network, we can create a comprehensive program that empowers students with the skills they need to succeed in the job market. I believe that this collaboration will not only benefit individual students but also contribute to the overall growth of any person participating in these courses,” said Govind Jaiswal, Joint Secretary, Department of Higher Education, Ministry of Education.
A new cloud technology development program was introduced by PwC India in March of this year. It is an 18-month (three semester) credit course that focuses on Salesforce training and is targeted at post-graduates (B.Tech and M.Tech students) and third-year computer engineering graduates. The program’s objective is to give students skills that are applicable in a digital economy and ready for the future. 500 students will be enrolled in the program in its initial phase at five regional engineering institutes, according to a statement from PwC, which did not identify any of these institutions.
